Please place your character sees in the OOC board to make things easier on everyone ^^
I should also let it be known that I, if possible, will take no direct part in the main workings of the characters. This will be DND in occupational style on the pat of myself. will, if can, commandeer no specific character and only be in charge of the school, the vents and NPCs that will annoy you folks ^_^ I will commandeer the many teachers, big baddies and cuddly goodies. I will be the traps, the local animals, the environments and, most importantly, Nero Academy itself.
Everyone will get a different opening test so it won't be a test for all of the students to play a trick on one single teacher. One new guy, for instance, will be told to make Grathern jump in surprise while another will be told to out swim the local mermaid population, etc. All of you will get your goals as soon as you all post and it is my turn to post again.
Nero Academy is how it is in the picture above right now. Currently it is making its home on the ocean waves of the South Pacific. The waves are minimal and the water is very warm. Since Nero is stationary on its ocean location students cannot be lost at sea from the castle drifting too far.
Nero is infinitely spacious inside and just because the school is on the ocean doesn't mean that you can't walk on the field without being submerged in a hundred feet of water. The campus still has a spacious field with which to walk about, no ocean in sight. The bell tower in the courtyard does not show the ocean but the general castle complex around it. However, he main gates, if Nero decides to let you leave, does lead to the outside world of the ocean blue.
Also let it be known that Nero, as a living school, can do anything inside its own campus and, to a degree, many things outside the campus. Be aware that students can be "recalled" from outside the grounds if the school or headmaster wills it. The traps are entirely unseen to any students so don't act like you know a trap is around unless it swallows your buddy as you two are walking around. Even then you can't assure it is there.
Just know that, since I control the traps, you an butter me up, as the game master. If you happen to fall into a Deus Ex Machina that yo know I have been wanting to spring on someone but haven't been able to time right, I may be willing to give away a benny or three. Ask me what I want to plan for others and lea them to your doom. All students of Nero are subconsciously connected to it and therefor may willingly accept "nudges" from the school's conscience or similarly speak to the school in kind. This is the little plot spinner that lets you guys give me ideas through private messages or IM and lets me set up elaborate traps and events that will prove to spice up game play. Nobody else is to know what happens in the PMs or IMs in character but you can "whisper" to buddies via PM or IM and get it across in OC by stating that your character whispered in a friend's ear o wrote to them on a piece of paper. Remember that in Nero nobody is truly your friend. Don't necessarily trust that pipe full of green stuff that the friendly pot smoking drow hands you. Don't necessarily take help from somebody to get away from another. Everybody is on their own here. Your job is to be paranoid. I trust that everyone, no matter how willing to be a friend with someone else, will have a scheme up their sleeve to guide a person to their doom if only to get their character ahead. Still I'll say it now. NO KILLING! Lead them to "death" but you cannot attack directly.
So Have Fun! Remember that bennys can take any form and can happen at any time but while you may get "Slaps." Slaps are bad things. Bennys are good, you want them whatever they are, whenever possible. Slaps, whatever they may be, from falling into seemingly uncalled for traps to simply getting the gm's eternally present nose flare of disapproval, are things you do NOT want. Do not make Arthur angry. He gets angry at people and people suspiciously disappear, showing up days later with red buttocks or missing a hand.
